Coffee Logs are the latest addition to the briquette family and we all agree here in the Logs Direct office — these things are amazing! In the Coffee Logs founder Arthur Kay’s words,
“Waste coffee grounds are an amazing material - they contain 20% more energy than wood, so Coffee Logs burn hotter and for longer than other solid fuels. That makes them a better value option for anyone who wants to heat their home - and because they reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as the waste being sent to landfill, Coffee Logs also help the environment too.”
They are designed for use in log burners and multi-fuel stoves, though can be used in open fires too.
Upon opening the bag, you are presented with the lovely aroma of coffee. But you don’t have to worry about your house smelling like the local coffee hangout, as Coffee Logs don’t smell of coffee when they’re burning.
And Coffee Logs aren’t messy. Are you oftentimes reluctant to start the wood burner because of the shear overhead and mess of wood logs? Coffee Logs are the answer. Each bag weighs only 8kg, and comes with a convenient handle. So mobility and handling are a breeze.
To add to all this, we have the feel-good factor of knowing that you’re using a product produced from 100% waste, and which saves on greenhouse gas emissions. All these coffee grounds would otherwise be going into landfill where they would emit methane, a greenhouse gas 34 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Turning the grounds into Coffee Logs instead saves 80% on CO2e emissions! Putting coffee grounds in landfill makes no sense - it’s bad for the environment and expensive for coffee shops.
